The Words of the Prophet

Translation of Sahih BukhariVolume 7, Book 65, Number 356:

Narrated Sad:

Allah’s Apostle said, “He who eats seven ‘Ajwa dates every morning, will not be affected by poison or magic on the day he eats them.”

    Well in the great nation of Shoddy Absurdia they still execute people for “sorcery”. Let’s hope they keep it up because rational people could do some damage with 72 Eurofighter Typhoons. But the Saudis won’t read the manual, they’ll sacrifice a goat.

    And the Arabs wonder why Israel always whips them?

    I BTW have developed a belated liking for the Tiffy. It’s not quite a Raptor and it needs a helmet hounted sight and an AESA radar but it’s not bad – it’s not a Rafale. It sure can dance and the acceleration is something else. Apparently it can more than hold it’s own against the Raptor WVR and whipped Indian Sukhoi 30MKIs

    Was that Saudi? Or Nepal?

    OK, so Nepal is off the holiday itinery.

    I once flew Air Adria to Yugoslavia in an ancient DC-8. It was something else. My most terrifying flight was from New York LaGuardia to Atlanta Hartsfield. We had to abort landing at the last second and I never knew an MD-80 had that kinda zoom climb in it. And Delta had consilidated the flight, the bastards.

    When my parents lived in Zambia there was an Indian “doctor” down the road who had a nice brass plaque, University of Bombay, BMBS (failed). He couldn’t for obvious reasons practise in India but in Africa… Well, a failed medical degree is better than some charlatan shaking dem bones.

    PS. I assume it was something like BMBS which is the standard UK medical degree.
